Thursday 11 June sees the official release of The Future of Live Music (Bloomsbury) which includes the chapter I wrote about the Puzzle. The occasion is being marked by an online event that will see key figures from the music industry and leading academics from around the world come together virtually to explore the question ‘What is the Future of Live Music?’. A topical subject particularly since the abrupt halt on public gatherings due to Covid-19.
The online event will start at 2pm on Youtube live, with legendary musicians Peter Hook of Joy Division and New Order and 808 State co-founder Graham Massey, joined by Liam Ogborne from the band ‘Working Mens Club’ plus leading venue and festival operator Aaron Mellor, Teresa Moore from a Greener Festival and music industry consultant Tony Rigg.
